Two high-profile artists who were scheduled to perform during this Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony have reportedly pulled out. The AP cites a source who’s familiar with the decision saying Kendrick Lamar and SZA have opted not to perform.
The source “told The Associated Press on Thursday that the duo behind ‘All the Stars’ will no longer perform at Sunday’s show because of ‘logistics and timing,'” the AP reports, noting that Lamar and SZA will still be in attendance.
“All the Stars,” from “Black Panther,” is nominated for best original song.
“The other four songs competing for the award will be performed Sunday,” the AP notes. The nominees are “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born”; “I’ll Fight” from the Ruth Bader Ginsburg documentary “RBG”; “The Place Where Lost Things Go” from “Mary Poppins Returns”; and “When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings” from “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.”
